In monastic communities, one can observe what feast it is by what kind of meal is served in the dining room. On this Solemnity of the Archangels, the students enjoyed a great meal, topped off by pumpkin pie bars, made from this year's pumpkin crop.
Lastly, Fr. Dan Lenz has created the archangels to last forever. Fr. Dan carved the archangels from the marble altar that used to be in our chapel years ago. The Archangels are now in the abbey Oratory. They are awesome.
